How to style a wrap snake print dress: Overcome ophidiophobia, the fear of snakes.

There are different ways to style snake prints. You must have seen celebrities like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and lots more wearing a snake print design, either in a music video or in a public appearance. Snake print got really trendy and every IT girl and fashionista enjoyed styling it except me because I get easily irritated by a snake. The imagination of a snake close to my skin keeps coming to my mind each time I see snake print fabric. I decided to overcome my fear and phobia and look how flawlessly sexy I look wearing a snake print.  

How to overcome the fear of snakes (ophiophobia).

Ophidiophobia, or ophiophobia, is a phobia which relates to the fear of snakes. It is said to be abnormal but I think no one wants a snake around him or her. I will like to say that this is not as easy as I make it seem. I still have a very strong phobia I am battling with but I had to overcome it just because I wanted to try out the snake print trend. Aminals prints such as zebra print, leopard and fish prints do not affect me so I was super excited to always wear them.

Each time I see the picture snakes on the internet the mood changes, I get so irritated and disgusted, fear comes in, I start imagining things. I had to overcome my fears because I really wanted to feature styling tips on how to wear snake print.

1. It is all about you, only you can decide how this can work with your mind. Be in control of your thoughts.

2. It's all in your mind. Our weak thoughts are developed when we allow a weak flow towards a particular subject. Try to channel your thoughts into the stronger part when you start thinking about snakes.

3. Don't over think it. In as much as we can not control some thoughts but we can kill thoughts and control them in a way. Do not let these thought grow. They grow and you keep imagining the deadly things snakes can do. Keep your mind free and clean from those thoughts.

4. Try to Speak to yourself. Step on it in your head, it is only a print.

5. Try to feel it more often to keep you aware that it's just a piece of fabric and that's what it will be.
